Who are this year’s World Cup favourites?
Every four years, all the continents gather to compete with each other in the biggest sporting competition, the FIFA World Cup. The excitement during the month-long tournament is absolutely electrifying. I just love the energy around huge tournaments such as this one when all of the fans gather to root for their countries and even bet on their teams with betboro. Everyone gets into it, all the way from Europe to Asia, including those in North and South America. Do you know who are this year’s World Cup favourites? Well, let me first provide some information about the World Cup.
The FIFA World Cup 2022
This year’s tournament will be held from November 21 to December 18, 2022 in Qatar. The 2022 World Cup will be the 22nd edition of the FIFA World Cup.. This will be the second time that Qatar has hosted this event, after doing so in 2006.
The first round of matches will take place in Doha and Al Wakrah. The final will take place at Lusail Stadium in Doha. Qatar is one of the smallest countries in the Middle East, but you wouldn’t know it from their bid for the World Cup. They’ve proposed an entire city-sized stadium that will seat 80,000 people and have air conditioning. The stadium is designed to look like a desert mirage, with a giant screen on the field that will show holographic images of players running around—or at least it looks like they’re running around. The whole thing is meant to feel like you’re watching a game live while actually being somewhere else entirely.
So, who are the favourites?
The United States is one of the biggest contenders for the 2022 World Cup, but they’re far from the only ones. Spain is also a team that has consistently performed well at previous tournaments, so you can be sure that they’ll be looking to do well again this time around.
France is also an excellent team to watch out for. Even though they lost in the final against Croatia last year, they were an incredible contender all throughout the tournament and will likely make a huge impact this time around as well.
They’ll need to overcome some tough competition though: Argentina has made it into three consecutive finals, winning twice (and losing once). They are hoping that this will be their year! And then there’s Brazil—the team with perhaps the most fans in all of football (and maybe even all sports). Their fans will certainly be cheering them on every step of the way!
Germany has won four World Cups since 1954 (the most recent one being in 2014), but they haven’t done well in recent years. They lost out on qualifying for 2018’s tournament entirely! This year seems like their chance for redemption—and they may have just found their new coach: Joachim Löw was replaced by Jogi.
Who are your favourites?
Feel free to let me know which teams you believe could win the 2022 World Cup. I love that the winner can be absolutely anyone, but it is sure fun to speculate and guess.
